Transition Instructions

If you are a new JOY feeder, we recommend that you change over from your previous brand gradually. This transition can be completed in less than one week.

A Different Approach

JOY likes to do things just a little bit differently. A company who considers the pet the customer—rather than the pet owner—their dry food is based on your pet's natural chewing instincts, with flavor, nutrition and digestibility making up the champion-worthy recipes. Starting with their original kibble in 1953, JOY's focus remains on serving recipes that are proudly manufactured in the USA.

A Different Approach
A Bowl Filled With Guaranteed JOY

A Bowl Filled With Guaranteed JOY

From puppy formulas that are made just for young, growing bellies to high-performance food for active adult dogs, all of JOY's recipes start with natural, premium ingredients. Many of their recipes are filled with essential nutrients like omegas-3 and 6 for a shiny coat, and glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy joints and muscles. There's also grain-free formulas for sensitive dogs, and they're all based in great flavor with an appealing texture that dogs are guaranteed to love.

Treat Them to Something Tasty

Because, just like humans, all dogs need a treat now and then. Whether they learned a new trick or they're just being extra cute, JOY treats make it fun to show your furry friend some extra love. Including soft and chewy bacon strips that are made from real bacon, and chicken jerky that's grain- and gluten-free, their treats combine unbeatable flavors with premium quality.

About JOY

About JOY

With humble beginnings that go back to 1943, JOY originally started as a chain of grocery stores that provided supplies to rural farming communities in Pennsylvania. But when small farms started to shrink, thus eliminating the need for farming stores, the founders decided to switch gears. They began researching dog food, and along with the help of Cornell and Penn State Universities, the first blend was crafted right on the family stove. It's still nutritionally sound today, and it's been the basis of their growing varieties and trusted name for over 60 years.

    My dog didn't like it

    By marta on Nov 1, 2021

    When I was reading about this food, I was excited about its good quality. Unfortunately, my dog couldn't care less about it... he would eat only some if I added some broth or other add-ons...

    Joy Ultimate Lamb and Rice 21/12

    By Janet on Apr 7, 2021

    I used to sell this feed, but the mill no longer carries it. 26/16 is too much fat for my dog. Do you have the Lamb and Rice 21/12?

    Meh I suppose

    By dawn on Nov 13, 2019

    I read the reviews before ordering and was excited by what I was reading. I thought my dog would love this new food, that it was a higher quality food than he had been getting as of lately. I have been disappointed in his response to it. He does not care for it at all and will only eat a decent amount if I add something else to it. I will not be ordering this again, my dog is not picky and he doesn't like this food.

    Great quality great price!

    By Lauren on Jul 22, 2019

    I use to feed Rachel Ray for a long time and then my pit started to seem not interested in it anymore. I was able to get samples of this new brand and she gobbled it up. Really happy I found something new that she loves. I also add a little coconut oil from time to time to help with digestion. Just a little tip

    Cricket Buster

    By Dogs on Feb 23, 2019

    They love it. No more odor or any skin issues. I like the small kibbles. I feed all my smaller pups this food just because of that.

    Joy Ultimate Chicken meal And Rice

    By Cherie on Dec 22, 2018

    I have studied dog food ingredients for 45 years I have been very careful on what my show and hunting dogs ate. I have only 4 dogs now, rather than a kennel. I remembered a Dachshund breeder/ shower who fed this dog food and had many top dogs in the US. I decided to try your food and my dogs love it and I am very pleased with the their overall health and coat. Picture is of an 11 year old Whippet

    Good food ...

    By 190w on Jan 25, 2019

    Have a German Shepherd that has skin issues if fed grain food or soy and this doesn’t cause issues like that and is almost as cheap as the grain food

    Little pieces

    By Jaxx on Sep 30, 2018

    My dogs have just loved this. I switched from a store brand to this because my younger dog was not putting on weight properly. And since then she's really started to fill out well. And even better, my older dog is having an easier time eating the small pieces.
